Foggy Racing road bike to go on show in April
The Team Foggy Racing (TFR) road bike makes its first public appearance in April.
British based companies Piper Design and MSX International are currently developing the FP1, standing for Foggy Petronas, alongside the race bike.
" It is running in parallel, the plans and development for the road bike are always in mind with the race bike, " said Team Foggy spokesman Neil Bramwell.
Petronas are required by superbike rules to produce a minimum of 150 road bikes with a 900cc capacity. The road bike should make around 130bhp.
As the bike is being designed as a race bike the fairing is certain to be as aerodynamic as possible, and is likely to remain similar to the GP bike that Petronas has already shown. The chassis is also likely to be similar.
While the race bike is expected to make its race debut at Laguna Seca on July 14 the roadbike will be appearing much sooner. TFR are currently considering a number of launch dates, in April or May, in both Malaysia and the UK.
" Petronas has invested a lot of money in the project. There will be a mass produced Foggy road bike, and we will see it this year, " said Bramwell.
MCN expects to bring you the world’s first pictures of the bike the moment it becomes possible.
